* BaseBreaker: Grace in [=GK2=] can be this. While many fans find her gameplay more interesting, there are others who can't stand [[{{Tsundere}} her attitude]].

Added DiffLines:

* SlowPacedBeginning: The series suffers from this for those not interested in backstory, historical minutiae, and/or drawn-out interview processes, especially when controlling Grace. Each of the three games takes about half the game for the action to pick up, which is good when it does, but until then it's jarring.

* RewatchBonus: Plenty of minor incidents in [=GK3=] after you learn that [[spoiler: Emilio is an immortal]].

** If you listen in on the drummer on the day after you crash the St. John's Eve conclave, the only word you can make out is "Warn." YMMV, of course, on whether it makes the Paranoia Fuel better or worse that the frightful Voodoo cult is just as frightened of ''you.''

** Not very many puzzles require even rudimentary knowledge of any language besides English, so the "Drei Drachen" puzzle counts too.

** While there are certainly extenuating circumstances, the scene at the end of [=GK1=] where Mosely guns down Dr. John is much more unsettling in light of the recent PoliceBrutality against black civilians in the US.

* FridgeBrilliance: Novelisations of the first two games were released, but never the third. In-universe, Gabriel writes two Blake Backlash novels based on the cases he encounters in ''Sins of the Fathers'' and ''The Beast Within'', but it's implied that between his depression over Grace leaving him and his full-on breakdown as of ''Temptation'' that he never got around to writing a novel based on his experiences in ''Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned''. Hence no novelisation of that game, perhaps?


Added DiffLines:

* LesYay: It's pretty strongly hinted that Lily and Estelle in ''Blood of the Sacred...'' are more than just "companions".

* GameBreaker: Deducing the correct combination to the old clock found in Grandma's attic, while essentially logical, is arguably one of the hardest puzzles in the entire series, due to the fact that the hints provided by the game will most likely seem to most gamers as totally unrelated. There is, however, an effective, albeit tedious and boring way to solve it without consulting a game guide, namely to try out every single of the ''1728'' possibilities. The game designers seem to have thought about such an approach, which is probably why the correct symbol to match the hands of the clock to is located [[spoiler:immediately to the left from the default symbol, thus causing most gamers, naturally prone to going through the puzzle the way a normal clock hand would move, to waste hours on end of their gameplay, finally getting the right combination at the very end of their torment.]] It doesn't help that every time you move the hands of the clock, the cursor will automatically teleport to the very fringe of the screen and possibly make you accidentally turn off the puzzle, forcing you to go through the annoying icon-changing sequences every five minutes or so.

** The German accents throughout ''The Beast Within'' are generally pretty good -- until Grace talks to the workman installing the chandelier in the game's final act. He says "ja" a couple of times, and says the rest of his lines in a normal American accent.
